Demolishing the shower was not easy. The mortar bed that they installed in some places was over an inch thick. It was dry as a bone after 40 years. The tiler on this job did not get any call-backs I believe.
The amount of weight all of the mortar adds is incredible. The new materials will be a lot lighter.
There's at least one layer of wallpaper that's been painted over so all of the drywall has to go.

All the plumbing behind the walls is in good shape.
